About me

Good morning! Hallo! Ciao! Hello!

I am Aurélie_Happy Shoes

It is in nature, especially in the mountains, that I feel happy and most connected to myself.   I spent my childhood in Leysin in the Vaudois Alps and I have now had the chance to live in Valais for several years. I have also taken up residence in Zermatt, an internationally renowned resort, surrounded by 4000m peaks and larches.

After many years spent at the reception of hotels, tourist offices and lately ski schools and guide offices, I decided that the time had come to guide hikes myself. It was then that I decided to enroll in the ASGM mountain guide training; training that I completed in 2022.


And since then, I am completely happy and thankful for this  choice and living my new life fully, I have already had the chance to take my first steps on the way to Santiago de Compostela and to guide many hikes in our beautiful regions.


I look forward to sharing my passion for mountain hiking with you. I hope you will find your happiness among the proposed hikes. If not, it is with pleasure that I take note of your wishes and organize the hike of your choice.


Do not hesitate to contact me
